- Hi randomize,
I think I speak for a majority of Tengaged here when I say that it would be great to see moderation return to the website. As I've said in the past, most of us more veteran Tengaged users fully understand your hesitation due to your trusting of users in the past with the role and it not working out like it should have. However, there are viable candidates who I'm sure you could trust with the position to finally get the site fully moderated again. If your plan is to stay active and you find the moderator you appoint to be incapable of using their powers in the way they are intended to be used, you can simply remove them. It may be a tedious process but certainly a more successful one than the unfortunate past where mods have been left to run the site themselves.
As I have also mentioned previously, if you require the password to the #Tengaged_Moderation account myself or one of the other previous staff members ( JustMe or Johneh) could certainly give that back to you. If your full intention is to get this site back and running to its full capacity, moderation is a key role that needs to be filled, especially to ensure that there are no loopholes that are found when it comes to multiple accounts and cheating.
The return of moderation would allow the community to thrive again. The updates that have been done on the website so far have already brought people back to the website and I assume it has increased the number of people who visit it daily. It'd ensure cheating is eliminated, multiple accounts are banned and anybody who posts pornographic images or homophobic/racist slurs get punished.
As some have said previously, some view this as a ploy for me to return to the moderation position. That's just not true and I think I can speak for many previous moderators in saying that it is a very difficult role and one that shouldn't be taken lightly. It's something that can be very frustrating but with the activity of randomize again, perhaps it could make things much easier on somebody who actually takes on the role.
randomize, what we ask is that you simply address the issue. Please listen to some of your more veteran users who have been around for quite some time when thinking of updates that can be beneficial towards the website. Addressing the issue of moderation is something that takes a few seconds of your time and by doing that it would allow us to know the direction the website will be taking.
